We have become good friends with our neighbors in Maine. They invited us to have drinks at the house of their good friends (D &S). We got a tour of their garden - it was so beautiful that it could be on the cover of any home & garden magazines. We also got a tasting of some sweet peas and cherries freshly picked from the garden. It was a lovely evening spent in an idyllic setting with bottomless mojitos and stimulating conversations.
It has been rainy and overcast. We were told this was unusual weather for July but the rain is really good for the local farms. Lots of flowers blossomed after the rain.
Walk around downtown Bar Harbor. This is well-known local museum but closed due to covid.
A church built in the 1800s. The church’s front yard is filled with tombstones of unsung heroes .
Mount Desett Street is where you will find all the classic New England style inns in Bar Habor. It’s a pretty street to take a walk and snatch a few photos of the cute inns.
Another great family-friendly hike in the town of Bar Harbor! Well, it’s more like a walk with nice views than a hike because it’s totally flat with well-defined path.
A high-end inn with a tasting menu restaurant.
A casual restaurant known for its crepes and cocktails (recommended by our host). It’s part of the Acadia Hotel.
Drove by this farm and everything looked so good. We made a stop and took home a bunch of fresh greens.
There is a large field of wild blueberries right in front of our rental house. The harvest season is usually early Aug to early Sep so we were pleasantly surprised when we spotted some ripe ones in early July. We had a blasting picking them and they tasted good too - you can’t get more organic than this!!!
Very unusual sunset ... as if the whole sky was on fire
